Stand Right There

About Marty

I’ve dreamt about singing for an audience my entire life. When I was a kid I sang every chance I got. Recitals, school plays, weddings and funerals; you name it. But life took a different turn and music took a back seat. It wasn’t until later in life when I picked up the guitar and started playing in a local cover band, did I get the bug once again. A few years after that I started writing music and that has lead me on this journey.

The EP

The first single, “Stand Right There” was released in January, 2022. “Play it Again” was released on March 25th, 2022. Other songs on the EP are:
